painting landscape from 2006
I paint what I see because I like it and it moves me. Painting from life is like a game of chess with reality, you almost always lose, but it's a pleasure! And pleasure is already an argument. Also a political approach.
People talk about landscape as a minor genre, without ‘concept’... but I don't think there are minor genres, only good or bad paintings. And the bad ones are cool too!
These paintings were exhibited in O amor e outras desordens, solo exhibition at ArtePeriférica, CCB, Lisbon, February 2012 / Lisboa e outros asuntos de cama , solo exhibition in COAG, Santiago, February, 2011 / Del taller a la Patagonia y otros asuntos domésticos, solo exhibition at Sargadelos Gallery Monforte de Lemos, September 2007, etc.
Precioso Zacatecas was painted during Rumbo Zacatecas, an artistic Project Development and art residence in Zacatecas, México, Rojo Urbiola Foundation scholarship. May, June 2007
